|Next exhibition of vagina vérité®: TBD|
a space for conversation on vagina-related subjects.
vaginaverite.com grew out of my work on vagina vérité®, a book of vulva portraits for women. The v-portraits are close-up documentary photographs that reveal the elusive face of the ordinary vagina in plain view—not that there is such a thing as an ordinary vagina—they are each unique and beautiful.
vagina vérité® is an unabashed exploration of the plain, ordinary, mysterious matter of vaginas. So we can see ourselves for ourselves.
Working on the project led to so many fun, moving, thought-provoking conversations. Read the story of vagina vérité® here. Shared topics and themes emerged, and from these (our stories, questions and concerns) followed the questionnaires listed there on the right.
vaginaverite.com is the companion website to the vagina book. It's a repository for our stories, mainly told as responses to the questionnaires. Its mission is to provide a comfortable environment for women to share their experiences and propose questions to explore. Its purpose is to engender respect and appreciation for our bodies by providing access to each other's experiences.
vaginaverite.com is dedicated to the value of our individual experiences, and celebrates diversity and the beauty of all women.
While vaginaverite.com is for, and about, women, men are warmly welcomed.
I have photographed over 100 v-portraits for vagina vérité®, the book, and am always looking to exhibit. If you have suggestions on an NYC space, I'd love to hear about it!

I hope you enjoy the site, and I look forward to hearing what you think.
* The newsletter is opt-in, and opt-out whenever you like. It is an opportunity to be kept in the loop on all leave the castle projects. To leave the castle is to step out of your comfort zone. Something I am always looking to do! vagina vérité® is my primary leave the castle project at this time.
Attend a Sunday Afternoon Salon, where you can view the v-portraits and engage in conversation. Salons take place the third Sunday of the month in NYC.
what's a salon?
A salon is a gathering for learning or enjoyment. It's a conversation in my living room, that I hope will spill out into the world.
Find more info about what to expect at salons, the schedule and attending here.
